050 // Getting Off the Couch

Today is for reading, and writing, and laundry…and Netflix. I’m hoping to be off the couch and in the “creativity room” by noon but I’m a realist. I know myself and on days like this, my will power is incredibly low. Without some further fortifying circumstances or substances, I have very little chance of winning this fight against myself.

I’ll give copious amounts of coffee a try, but I promise nothing.


I finished binge-watching The Umbrella Academy on Netflix and it was very good, can’t recommend it enough. Hopefully, season 2 isn’t too far away…sigh.

Afterward, I was able to force myself up and off the couch to clean, to write, and to mark a thing or two off of my to-do list. (Coffee did help!) I was too late to make it into the “creativity room” but tomorrow is another day, another chance.

And now, the long weekend is over. I’m off to bed early tonight because I know tomorrow morning will be hard. I’ve been staying up, sleeping in and doing exactly what I want every day since last Friday. Starting tomorrow I’m back to doing just what everyone else wants me to do and it won’t be easy, emotionally or physically.

Oh well, there’s less than four weeks left until Spring break.

The countdown begins.
